Louisiana hospital plans $100M cancer center

Our Lady of the Lake Regional Medical Center in Baton Rouge, La., plans to build a $100 million cancer institute.

Construction on the 80,000-square-foot cancer center is slated to start in 2022. Our Lady of the Lake Cancer Institute will be located in Baton Rouge and connect to the regional medical center.

The institute will house surgical oncology, chemotherapy and infusion center, imaging and diagnostics and an on-site pharmacy.

"We are excited to bring all of these services under one roof with our holistic approach to cancer therapy," said Scott Wester, president and CEO of Our Lady of the Lake. "Our Lady of the Lake Cancer Institute takes cancer services to the next level of treatment and effectiveness through a dedicated freestanding facility exclusively committed to patient-focused and quality driven care."

Daniel Nuss, MD, will lead the new cancer institute. The Cancer Institute team will include 600 physicians from Our Lady of the Lake Physician Group and other physician partners.
